Sanlam Namibia has handed over N$50 000 to the Cancer Association of Namibia(CAN) in support of the annual Hats and Roses Ladies Gala Breakfast that will take place in Windhoek in October.
Ms Denille Roostee, Marketing and Communications Manager of Sanlam Namibia, handed over the donation to CAN’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Rolf Hansen, thanking the association for the work they do to help fight cancer in Namibia:
“It is your passion that inspires us to take hands with CAN and we again reconfirm our support towards this very important cause,” she said.
The annual Hats and Roses event will be hosted on Saturday, 1 October 2022, at the Windhoek Country Club Resort & Casino and serves as a fundraiser to sustain CAN’s women’s health community clinics.
Cancer amongst Namibian women remain critical with more than 54% of all cancers diagnosed in Namibia being a female cancer diagnosis – breast and cervical cancers taking the lead.
Various project partners take hands to present this much-loved morning of hope annually. During the Covid-19 pandemic the production was placed on hold due to event restrictions.
“We again look forward to welcoming 500 ladies as in the past to share in this amazing morning of hope, and to raise funds that will enable CAN to help financially vulnerable women fighting cancer” said Hansen.
Tickets are now for sale at N$550 per person or N$5500 for a table of ten and includes a “pink luncheon” with drinks and gifts to spoil the ladies. For more information the Projects Department of CAN is reachable at 061 237740 or firstname.lastname@example.org
